Filmmaker Shawn Levy (“Night at the Museum,” “Real Steel”) has signed on to develop and direct the film adaptation of the highly popular open world video game “Minecraft” for Warner Bros. Pictures.
Officially launched in 2011, the project allows players to use cubes to build walls to protect them from evil nocturnal monsters in a world known as The Nether. The game has since evoled though with players crafting astounding creations.
The official site for the game has over 100 million registered users, the XBox version alone has sold over 10 million copies.
The project does not have a screenwriter attached at this time. Roy Lee and Jill Sobel Messick are producing.
